Coincidences.. no.. I do not believe in Coincidences. I believe everything happens for a reason and we should learn from it.
Have you ever heard of or read the Celestine Prophecy?
“Each coincidence is a test. You can’t learn until you pass the test. If you don’t get it the first time, you get successive opportunities, each with a firmer influence. Each time is a louder wake up call. It is up to each of us to recognize when the coincidence occurs and try to find the message that is being communicated to us.”
“We are all messengers for each other and these messages come in the form of coincidences. It is up to each of us to ferret out the message when it presents itself. The message usually gets our attention in the form of a coincidence. Sometimes, the message won’t be so obvious, other times, it will be crystal clear.”
and of course the very First Insight
” Insight #1
The first insight occurs when we become conscious of the coincidences in our lives and that some other process is operating. It manifests as a profound sense of restlessness which leads people to take a ‘me-first’ and demanding attitude.
Once we reach a certain critical mass, the entire culture will begin to take these coincidences more seriously. Chance coincidences are meant to happen. Recognizing and following them will start you on your path to your spiritual truth.
The coincidences take the form of a series of events which point to a higher path. Each is a message leading us to a grander awareness. There is a spiritual program in operation. These coincidences are leading us to our spiritual destiny. Once you become aware of these coinincedences, you will note they happen more often. We have been pooh-poohing miraculous or chance happenings as nothing to seriously consider or as anything that could remotely have an intended purpose or provide a sense of direction.”
